Default Buying the right ribbon online

Hi ladies, I started lurking this forum a few weeks ago looking for something for my daughter and I to do together. (Shes entering her moody tween years) After getting a few ideas we immediately hit Joanns Fabric and bought a few different colors of Offray Grosgrain ribbon. Then when we decided to switch it up, we went to a different store called Hobby Lobby, they were having a 50% off sale all their ribbons, so we grabbed and grabbed. The brand from store 2 is ribbon FX, it says grosgrain and 100% polyester. The 2 different brands have a very different feel and look to them, the FX has an almost shiny, birthday look to it. (like the kind you put on gifts) The FX also doesnt seem to hold the Korker curl as well.

Anyway, we want to start purchasing ribbon online and get much more ribbon for a better price, how do I know which type I will end up with? Also, is the difference in the brand or is there something else Im missing? I guess I need tips on how to buy quality ribbon, lol.

We are obviously new to ribbon so any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I don't care for Hobby Lobby's ribbon, except for 3/8" for clippies. I would suggest Ribbonsandbowsohmy.com, theribbonretreat.com and the hip girl boutique. I like to use Schiff brand of ribbon, which you can find at RABOM and TRR.

I find that the ribbon from Hobby Lobby does not hold up as well as others so I generally stay away from their ribbon. I order most of my stuff from hip girl.

I like HL's double faced satin more than I like the satin ribbon ive ordered from RABOM. It's shinier and seems thicker. I don't know what brand I'm getting from either place. I use the thinner ribbon from HL to embellish my tutu wands. I like the skinny organza with the dots.
